Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality in which fine needles are inserted at specific points to stimulate, disperse, and regulate the flow of qi, or energy, to restore a healthy balance to mind and body. Acupuncture is used to relieve pain, improve well-being and treat acute, chronic, and degenerative conditions in children and adults.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes for Health (NIH), and clinical experience, acupuncture is useful in the treatment of a variety of issues, from anxiety to MS.

Cupping is an ancient technique that uses glass cups, similar in shape to fish bowls, to manipulate soft tissue, much like one would in deep tissue massage. The main difference between massage and cupping is that cupping creates a vacuum, rather than using compression of soft tissue, to relieve strain and tension.
The cups are gently warmed using a cotton ball soaked in alcohol, then placed inside the cup quickly and skillfully. The small flame removes all the oxygen, creating a negative pressure to pull the skin, fascia and underlying tissue tightly into the cup.
The cups can be left in a single location or, if oil is applied, slid along the skin to affect a larger area.
Gua Sha

Gua Sha translates to "to scrape sand". This has to do with the appearance of tiny red or purple dots on the skin after a treatment.

The technique involves repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth instrument, traditionally a ceramic soup spoon. This triggers the body's natural anti-inflammatory response which may continue for several days after the treatment relieving pain and tension in the affected areas.

Myofascial release is a style of massage that focuses on using sustained pressure to relieve tissue restrictions, eliminate pain and restore normal range of motion. Myofascial work can be done with or without oils.
Tui na is an ancient form of Chinese manipulative therapy that uses a variety of strokes and hand techniques to treat musculo-skeletal and organ related issues. Tui na translates to "push and lift", which describes the two main techniques used in the therapy.
